           COMFORTABLE AMI trial: randomized comparison of biodegradable
           polymer-based biolimus-eluting stents with bare-metal stents in patients

      Abstract: AimsThe long-term outcomes of biolimus-eluting stents (BESs) with biodegradable polymer as compared with bare-metal stent (BMS) in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) remain unknown.Methods and resultsWe performed a 5-year clinical follow-up of 1157 patients (BES: N = 575 and BMS: N = 582) included in the randomized COMFORTABLE AMI trial. Serial intracoronary imaging of stented segments using both intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography performed at baseline and 13 months follow-up were analysed in 103 patients. At 5 years, BES reduced the risk of major adverse cardiac events [MACE; hazard ratio (HR) 0.56, 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.39–0.79, P = 0.001], driven by lower risks for target vessel-related reinfarction (HR 0.44, 95% CI: 0.22–0.87, P = 0.02) and ischaemia-driven target lesion revascularization (HR 0.41, 95% CI: 0.25–0.66, P < 0.001). Definite stent thrombosis (ST) was recorded in 2.2% and 3.9% (HR 0.57, 95% CI: 0.28–1.16, P = 0.12) with no differences in rates of very late definite ST (1.3% vs. 1.6%, P = 0.77). Optical coherence tomography showed no difference in the frequency of malapposed stent struts at follow-up (BES 0.08% vs. BMS 0.02%, P = 0.10). Uncovered stent struts were rarely observed but more frequent in BES (2.1% vs. 0.15%, P < 0.001). In the IVUS analysis, there was no positive remodelling in either group (external elastic membrane area change BES: −0.63 mm2, 95% CI: −1.44 to 0.39 vs. BMS −1.11 mm2, 95% CI: −2.27 to 0.04, P = 0.07).ConclusionCompared with BMS, the implantation of biodegradable polymer-coated BES resulted in a lower 5-year rate of MACE in patients with STEMI undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention. At 13 months, vascular healing in treated culprit lesions was almost complete irrespective of stent type.Clinical Trial Registration Unique identifier: NCT00962416.

  • Acute coronary syndrome triggered by nitro-resistant triptan-induced
           coronary spasm
    • Authors: Otsuka T; Räber L.
      Pages: 1919 - 1919
      Abstract: A 47-year-old woman was admitted with ongoing chest pain radiating to her left shoulder since 2 h. Prior to chest pain onset, she suffered from a migraine attack, which she treated for the first time with rizatriptan benzoate (20 mg). The electrocardiogram (Panel C) showed negative T waves in leads V2–4. Her risk factors were hyperlipidaemia (LDL-C: 210 mg/dL) and smoking. High-sensitive troponin T was elevated at 40 ng/L (ULN 14 ng/mL).

  • Neuropeptide-Y causes coronary microvascular constriction and is
           associated with reduced ejection fraction following ST-elevation
           myocardial infarction
    • Authors: Herring N; Tapoulal N, Kalla M, et al.
      Pages: 1920 - 1929
      Abstract: AimsThe co-transmitter neuropeptide-Y (NPY) is released during high sympathetic drive, including ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), and can be a potent vasoconstrictor. We hypothesized that myocardial NPY levels correlate with reperfusion and subsequent recovery following primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI), and sought to determine if and how NPY constricts the coronary microvasculature.Methods and resultsPeripheral venous NPY levels were significantly higher in patients with STEMI (n = 45) compared to acute coronary syndromes/stable angina ( n = 48) or with normal coronary arteries (NC, n = 16). Overall coronary sinus (CS) and peripheral venous NPY levels were significantly positively correlated (r = 0.79). STEMI patients with the highest CS NPY levels had significantly lower coronary flow reserve, and higher index of microvascular resistance measured with a coronary flow wire. After 2 days they also had significantly higher levels of myocardial oedema and microvascular obstruction on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, and significantly lower ejection fractions and ventricular dilatation 6 months later. NPY (100–250 nM) caused significant vasoconstriction of rat microvascular coronary arteries via increasing vascular smooth muscle calcium waves, and also significantly increased coronary vascular resistance and infarct size in Langendorff hearts. These effects were blocked by the Y1 receptor antagonist BIBO3304 (1 μM). Immunohistochemistry of the human coronary microvasculature demonstrated the presence of vascular smooth muscle Y1 receptors.ConclusionHigh CS NPY levels immediately after reperfusion correlate with microvascular dysfunction, greater myocardial injury, and reduced ejection fraction 6 months after STEMI. NPY constricts the coronary microcirculation via the Y1 receptor, and antagonists may be a useful PPCI adjunct therapy.

  • Impact of large periprocedural myocardial infarction on mortality after
           percutaneous coronary intervention and coronary artery bypass grafting for
           left main disease: an analysis from the EXCEL trial
    • Authors: Ben-Yehuda O; Chen S, Redfors B, et al.
      Pages: 1930 - 1941
      Abstract: AimsThe prognostic implications of periprocedural myocardial infarction (PMI) after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remain controversial. We examined the 3-year rates of mortality among patients with and without PMI undergoing left main coronary artery intervention randomized to PCI with everolimus-eluting stents vs. CABG in the large-scale, multicentre, prospective, randomized EXCEL trial.Methods and resultsBy protocol, PMI was defined using an identical threshold for PCI and CABG [creatinine kinase-MB (CK-MB) elevation >10× the upper reference limit (URL) within 72 h post-procedure, or >5× URL with new Q-waves, angiographic vessel occlusion, or loss of myocardium on imaging]. Cox proportional hazards modelling was performed controlling for age, sex, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, left ventricular ejection fraction, SYNTAX score, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). A total of 1858 patients were treated as assigned by randomization. Periprocedural MI occurred in 34/935 (3.6%) of patients in the PCI group and 56/923 (6.1%) of patients in the CABG group [odds ratio 0.61, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.40–0.93; P = 0.02]. Periprocedural MI was associated with SYNTAX score, COPD, cross-clamp duration and total procedure duration, and not using antegrade cardioplegia. By multivariable analysis, PMI was associated with cardiovascular death and all-cause death at 3 years [adjusted hazard ratio (HR) 2.63, 95% CI 1.19–5.81; P = 0.02 and adjusted HR 2.28, 95% CI 1.22–4.29; P = 0.01, respectively]. The effect of PMI was consistent for PCI and CABG for cardiovascular death (Pinteraction = 0.56) and all-cause death (Pinteraction = 0.59). Peak post-procedure CK-MB ≥10× URL strongly predicted mortality, whereas lesser degrees of myonecrosis were not associated with prognosis.ConclusionIn the EXCEL trial, PMI was more common after CABG than PCI, and was strongly associated with increased 3-year mortality after controlling for potential confounders. Only extensive myonecrosis (CK-MB ≥10× URL) was prognostically important.

  • Pulmonary cyclone: a case of large pulmonary arteriovenous malformation
           causing paradoxical coronary embolus treated with percutaneous closure
    • Authors: Gajanana D; Hashim H, Waksman R.
      Pages: 1941 - 1941
      Abstract: A 68-year-old woman with chronic anaemia, palpitations, frequent significant epistaxis since childhood, platypnea, and suspected Osler–Weber–Rendu disease presents with sudden onset of angina. Coronary angiography demonstrated thrombotic occlusion with recanalization of the mid segment of an obtuse marginal branch (Panel A). Right heart catheterization demonstrated high output state without an identified shunt. A two-dimensional echocardiogram demonstrated hypokinetic posterior wall with bubble study demonstrating significant intrapulmonary shunt from left pulmonary veins (Panel B). A venous duplex demonstrated non-occlusive deep venous thrombosis in the left mid femoral vein. Computed tomography (CT) of head, chest, abdomen, and pelvis was performed. The CT chest showed a large pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in the left lower lobe measuring 53 mm in diameter with septation. The AVM was fed by a left lower lobe pulmonary artery and drained into the left inferior pulmonary vein. There was no thrombus on contrast and delayed contrast imaging of the pulmonary AVMs (Panel C). Cardiac CT with three-dimensional reconstruction is demonstrated in Panel D. Given high output cardiac state, ongoing platypnea, and coronary thrombo-embolism, she underwent pulmonary angiography and placement of a 14 mm Amplatzer Vascular Plug II closure device in the left lower lobe of the pulmonary artery. Another feeding artery was embolized with Prenumbra POD Packing coil (30 cm long) (Panel E). After intervention, she reported significant improvement in her pulmonary symptoms. Follow-up CT pulmonary angiography demonstrated non-enhancement of the vast majority of the AVM, with only trace linear area of enhancement demonstrated posteriorly (Panel F).

  • Platelet reactivity and clinical outcomes in acute coronary syndrome
           patients treated with prasugrel and clopidogrel: a pre-specified
           exploratory analysis from the TROPICAL-ACS trial
    • Authors: Aradi D; Gross L, Trenk D, et al.
      Pages: 1942 - 1951
      Abstract: AimsThe value of platelet function testing (PFT) in predicting clinical outcomes and guiding P2Y12-inhibitor treatment is uncertain. In a pre-specified sub-study of the TROPICAL-ACS trial, we assessed ischaemic and bleeding risks according to high platelet reactivity (HPR) and low platelet reactivity (LPR) to ADP in patients receiving uniform prasugrel vs. PFT-guided clopidogrel or prasugrel.Methods and resultsAcute coronary syndrome patients with PFT done 14 days after hospital discharge were included with prior randomization to uniform prasugrel for 12 months (control group, no treatment modification) vs. early de-escalation from prasugrel to clopidogrel and PFT-guided maintenance treatment (HPR: switch-back to prasugrel, non-HPR: clopidogrel). The composite ischaemic endpoint included cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction, or stroke, while key safety outcome was Bleeding Academic Research Consortium (BARC) 2–5 bleeding, from PFT until 12 months. We identified 2527 patients with PFT results available: 1266 were randomized to the guided and 1261 to the control group. Before treatment adjustment, HPR was more prevalent in the guided group (40% vs. 15%), while LPR was more common in control patients (27% vs. 11%). Compared to control patients without HPR on prasugrel (n = 1073), similar outcomes were observed in guided patients kept on clopidogrel [n = 755, hazard ratio (HR): 1.06 (0.57–1.95), P = 0.86] and also in patients with HPR on clopidogrel switched to prasugrel [n = 511, HR: 0.96 (0.47–1.96), P = 0.91]. In contrast, HPR on prasugrel was associated with a higher risk for ischaemic events in control patients [n = 188, HR: 2.16 (1.01–4.65), P = 0.049]. Low platelet reactivity was an independent predictor of bleeding [HR: 1.74 (1.18–2.56), P = 0.005], without interaction (Pint = 0.76) between study groups.ConclusionBased on this substudy of a randomized trial, selecting prasugrel or clopidogrel based on PFT resulted in similar ischaemic outcomes as uniform prasugrel therapy without HPR. Although infrequent, HPR on prasugrel was associated with increased risk of ischaemic events. Low platelet reactivity was a strong and independent predictor of bleeding both on prasugrel and clopidogrel.

  • Integration of transthoracic focused cardiac ultrasound in the diagnostic
           algorithm for suspected acute aortic syndromes
    • Authors: Nazerian P; Mueller C, Vanni S, et al.
      Pages: 1952 - 1960
      Abstract: AimsThe diagnosis of acute aortic syndromes (AASs) is challenging and requires integrated strategies. Transthoracic focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) is endorsed by guidelines as a first-line/triage tool allowing rapid bedside assessment of the aorta. However, the performance of FoCUS in the European Society of Cardiology-recommended workup of AASs awaits validation.Methods and resultsThis was a prespecified subanalysis of the ADvISED multicentre prospective study. Patients with suspected AAS underwent FoCUS for detection of direct/indirect signs of AAS. Clinical probability assessment was performed with the aortic dissection detection risk score (ADD-RS). Case adjudication was based on advanced imaging, surgery, autopsy, or 14-day follow-up. An AAS was diagnosed in 146 (17.4%) of 839 patients. Presence of direct FoCUS signs had a sensitivity and specificity of 45.2% [95% confidence interval (CI) 37–53.6%] and 97.4% (95% CI 95.9–98.4%), while presence of any FoCUS sign had a sensitivity and specificity of 89% (95% CI 82.8–93.6%) and 74.5% (95% CI 71–77.7%) for AAS. The additive value of FoCUS was most evident within low clinical probability (ADD-RS ≤1). Herein, direct FoCUS signs were identified in 40 (4.8%) patients (P < 0.001), including 29 with AAS. ADD-RS ≤1 plus negative FoCUS for AAS rule-out had a sensitivity of 93.8% (95% CI 88.6–97.1%) and a failure rate of 1.9% (95% CI 0.9–3.6%). Addition of negative D-dimer led to a failure rate of 0% (95% CI 0–1.2%).ConclusionFoCUS has additive value in the workup of AASs. Direct FoCUS signs can rapidly identify patients requiring advanced imaging despite low clinical probability. In integrated bundles, negative FoCUS is useful for rule-out of AASs.

  • Reduced risk of gastrointestinal bleeding associated with proton pump
           inhibitor therapy in patients treated with dual antiplatelet therapy after
           myocardial infarction
    • Authors: Sehested T; Carlson N, Hansen P, et al.
      Pages: 1963 - 1970
      Abstract: AimsGuidelines differ in their recommendations on therapy to prevent gastrointestinal bleeding for patients treated with dual antiplatelet treatment (DAPT). We sought to investigate the effectiveness of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) to prevent upper gastrointestinal (UGI) bleeding in patients using DAPT following myocardial infarction (MI) in relation to current European Society of Cardiology guidelines recommendations.Methods and resultsWe linked Danish nationwide registries to identify patients taking DAPT 7 days following hospital discharge for an acute MI, and excluded individuals on anticoagulation therapy. We used multiple Cox regression modelling, to compute average risk of UGI bleeding in relation to PPI use. The associated treatment efficacy was compared based on guideline risk assessment. We studied 46 301 patients on DAPT after MI. Only 35% of patients at higher risk of UGI bleeding received recommended treatment with a PPI based on the guideline criteria. The 1--year risk of UGI bleeding was 1.0% [95% confidence interval (CI) 0.9–1.1%] and 1.7% (CI 1.5–2.0%) for high-risk patients. Overall PPI compared with no therapy, was associated with a risk ratio for UGI bleeding of 0.62 (CI 0.48–0.77) corresponding to an absolute risk difference of 0.44% (CI 0.39–0.48%). Proton pump inhibitor therapy was associated with a similar absolute risk difference [0.47% (CI 0.43–0.51%)] for high-risk patients.ConclusionProton pump inhibitor therapy is used less than suggested by guidelines in patients treated with DAPT following MI and was generally associated with reduced risk of UGI bleeding. Considering the overall low risk of bleeding, more focus should be on identifying patients benefiting the most from PPI therapy.
